Tomochichi U.S. Courthouse, Savannah, GA
A new 35,000 SF annex that will allow the Judiciary to meet its current and long-term needs for security, accessibility, and operational efficiency. As part of the design-build project, an existing government building and courtyard area were demolished prior to construction of the new development. Design was required to comply with multiple federal standards as well as City of Savannah requirements. The project was awarded LEED Gold and SITES Silver certifications. Because the new building occupies the full length of the property, creative solutions such as pervious pavers and a cistern were implemented to satisfy stormwater and water quality requirements. Approvals were obtained from City of Savannah, Savannah Historic Review Board, and the General Services Administration (GSA).
